Invasive Species

I learned the other day that invasive species is a category invented by argriculture departments to designate plants that have no economic “benefit” attached. Although the invasives are supposed to be differentiated from native plants, plants growing wild are not to be collected. Rather, they are to be purchased from growers who are issued permits to collect and propagate them.

So, I thought I’d do an inventory of the plants that have arrived in my yard on their own.
